Odd Couple: Addison Timlin talks about Odd Thomas “I grew up doing theatre in New York when I was a kid,” recalls Addison Timlin who is a native of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. “I did a musical called Gypsy which Sam Mendes [American Beauty] directed and that’s when I fell in love with playing a character who was quite a departure from me. It was something I felt a lot more passionate about and attachment to creatively.” The Oscar winning British director consistently travels between the worlds of theatre and film. “I had great understanding of how Sam worked and had a great relationship with him; he guided me into playing a young and vulnerable Gypsy pushed aside. Sam held my hand through that in way which was nurturing and kind. It was such a rewarding experience for me to pull off.” Timlin was limited by her age when auditioning for roles. “I did TV shows here and there playing a rebellious teenage daughter. My first feature film was Derailed [2005] which was right after I did Gypsy and had a good experience doing that. The second one was called Afterschool [2008] which was directed by a young guy [Antonio Campos] and his film company; they went on to become quite successful with Martha Marcy May Marlene [2011] and Simon Killer [2012]. It opened my mind to independent filmmaking and that was what I wanted to gear towards. Right after high school I got a TV show shooting out in L.A.. It was a show for NBC that never made it to the airwaves; however, after that I got Californication [2007 to present, Showtime] which opened a door into a wider platform to be recognized and then shortly after came Odd Thomas [2013].”

Odd Thomas is a cinematic adaptation of the book by Dean R. Koontz about a short-order cook (Anton Yelchin) in a small town with ability to see the dead and evil creatures who shares a strong spiritual bond with his childhood sweetheart Stormy Llewellyn (Addison Timlin). “I auditioned for the role and then auditioned again with Stephen Sommers [The Mummy] and Anton. There were a few girls in contention for the role who were all talented actresses. I can’t exactly pinpoint what it was but would have to chalk it up to the chemistry that was in room between Anton and me. Stephen had already cast Anton as Odd; he is such an incredible actor. The two of us had a real understanding the relationship between Stormy and Odd, and the all encompassing love between them.” Critical to the supernatural mystery was to make the pivotal romance believable. “For the movie to work and to honour the book that relationship had to really work between these two people. You have to care about the town being saved because that’s where they exist. It’s the driving element behind the whole thing.”

The source material was invaluable when researching the roles. “After I got the part I read the book and so did Anton to get more information about these characters to develop their relationship and to have an understanding of it,” states Addison Timlin. “What doesn’t make into the screenplay is very much there between the lines. I had my copy with me all the time and underlined things. A lot of it was how her apartment looked. It was all of these eclectic little features that create this safe space for her; that was a big thing for me. I’d spend some time collecting things, little mementos from my life and weird things I had around or would see to make that space come alive as it was in the book. My mom is an artist and she had made some hand-painted sculptures, little figurines and candlesticks as things that I had in Stormy’s apartment. Then also there’s a line in the book that says she has a moral anchor of a ship which was something I had myself saying all the time to think about the people in my life and things.” Timlin believes, “She’s the kind of character that people want to know and have in their life. I fell in love with Stormy because her whole being is to be good and to always be doing the right thing. Stormy is a selfless and strong willed young woman with a powerful presence; she’s the one who grounds Odd from all of the chaos that is in his mind.”...
